This is becoming almost too real for us.
Real Housewives of New Jersey has always felt like the most genuine city in the hit franchise's lineup due to the cast's real life family ties… and Teresa Giudice's daughters sure seem used to experiencing hardships in front of the cameras at this point.
That's because while celebrating her 10th birthday during Sunday night's episode, Milania Giudice broke everyone's hearts when she realized her dad Joe Giudice won't be around for her 11th birthday next year.

We're glad Milania was able to keep her signature sass throughout the realization, but we can't imagine being that young and dealing with something as scary as your dad's 41-month prison sentence.
With that said, the raw moment does a great job of showing just how much Joe actually loves his family, so we guess there really is a light at the end of the tunnel!
Unfortunately for the Giudices, Joe's only been in jail for five months so far in real time… which means they still have three whole years to go.
Ch-ch-check out the highlight of Sunday night's RHONJ (below)!!!
